MUSICAL NOTES. [BY LLWYN ON.] EXCHANGING PULPITS. We have often seen and read that ministers exchange pulpits, but never until this week of choirs exchanging with one another. This seems to have been the case at Ipswich, and by all account, with good results. Will Barry churches try the experiment ? This should be an effective way of improving the singing. "Y CERDDOR." This Welsh musical monthly is edited by Messrs D. Emlyn Evans and D. Jenkins, Mus. Bac., and in it from time to time appears some very good articles on musical subjects. Last month appeared a photo and sketch of the great tenor, Mr Ben Davies, and in this month appears a sketch and photo of Mr W. T. Samuel, of Cardiff and Barry, written by Mr D. Jenkins, Mus. Bac. SIGNOR FOLI. This celebrated basso has recently died at Southport. The first time we heard him was at Newport in the year 1875. He sang at Mr Sims Keeves' concert. He was born at Cahir, Tipperary, in 1842. His first appearance at the Handel Festival was in 1868. He was deservedly popular and will be much missed by lovers of music, DINAS POWIS EISTEDDFOD. The Methodist friends at Dinas Powis are making arrangements for their annual eistedd- fod, which will be held on the 9th May, 1900. May success attend their efforts. The Barry Eisteddfod, which will be held December 26th, 1899, has issued a good programme, and they deserve a very successful and interesting gath- ering. ROYAL LADIES' CHOIR. This excellent body of singers will give a concert next Wednesday at the Cadoxton Market Hall. The baton will be wielded by Madame Clara Novello Davies. This concert ought to be a very attractive one, and we feel confident that it will be a musical treat. MUSIC CLASSES. There are several excellent music classes under the Evening Continuation Schools at Barry, Holton Road, and Cadoxton. We feel glad that both notations are taught. Several of the young people who have joined are show- ing signs of musical ability, and iu time these classes will leave a good effect on the singing in the Barry district. CRYSTAL PALACE FESTIVALS. A number of excellent festivals are held every summer at the Crystal Palace. They bring together from different parts of the country a large number of choristers, and the singing on the whole is highly creditable. Arrangements are now being made for next t year's Festivals, and we trust that Barry dis- trict will be represented at the Temperance and Tonic SSolfa Festivals. FORTHCOMING CONCERT. We are delighted to understand that the Barry Temperance Choir is busy preparing fur their performance of the Messiah," the artistes the committee have secured Hre very good and will certainly give great sa'i>f«ction. The 'j Messiah will undoubtedly draw a larpe audience together, and we hi-artily wish the choir every success.
